Thursday Doors – Brandenburger Tor

Tor or gate?

This is a door.  One of the most famous doors in the World. But is it a door? The Branderburger Tor is a gate of course. But who cares? Germans don’t have humor. They say so themselve 🙂 So for this occasion the Brandenburger Tor is nothing more than a oversized door.

Haha! Yes I know. In the first line I already mention the fact that Tor translates in Gate 🙂 I love cliches! But it seems that Germans are not the only ones without humour? Just kidding. For the record: Berlin is my second favourite city in the World. Rotterdam the first. Thanks for responding, and sorry for my lack of humour (I am Dutch …)

Haha:)) Germans don’t have humor? This is such a cliche. And I’m not even German. Have you heard of Böhmermann recently? Or, since you’re talking about gates, the Erdogate affair?:) And why are you talking about a “door”? “Tor” translates as “gate” in English, not “door”.
Greetings from the Brandenburg Gate:)
